Stowbtsy (Belarusian: Стоўбцы, Stoŭbcy, Belarusian pronunciation: [ˈstowpt͡sɨ]) or Stolbtsy (Russian: Столбцы; IPA: [stɐlpˈt͡sɨ]; Polish: Stołpce; Yiddish: Steibtz) is a town in Minsk Region, Belarus, the administrative center of the Stowbtsy Raion (district). It is located at the Neman River. The population is approximately 15,400.
In August 1924, while Stowbtsy was part of the Second Polish Republic, the town was the site of a Soviet-Polish border incident in which a company of Soviet raiders attacked its police station and government building in order to free two imprisoned communist activists (see Soviet raid on Stołpce).
